Hire New York, NY Dueling Pianos for your event and you get a high-octane fiesta that’s part rock show, part comedy show and all sorts of craziness rolled into one big outrageous party. The audience becomes part of the show in a request-driven sing-along, dance-along, thump-the-tables-along extravaganza!! If you are looking for the unique alternative to a wedding band or unique party entertainment for your corporate function or private event, we are the dueling piano show for you!

New York, NY Dueling Pianos started in NYC in 2012. Within a couple years we were getting invited over the U.S. At first we would fly our New York performers in and rent equipment locally. As we grew, we invested in full traveling shows, complete with pianos, sound and lighting, based in major cities in Texas, California, the Midwest and Florida. We carefully added to our performer roster, until we developed the very best dueling piano talent anywhere. Even as our corporate offices remain in NYC, we are proud to play for audiences all throughout North America.







  • At what point in our event should we start the show?

    If you’re serving dinner, we strongly suggest that the show begin after the plates have been cleared. It is very difficult for us to get people to sing/dance/clap while they are chewing food! If you are serving cocktails, it’s always helpful to let the guests loosen up a bit before starting in on the show.

  • Can you run an iPod/Laptop through your sound system during dinner?

    Yup! Yours or ours. Let us know beforehand.

  • We like the idea of tipping wars but we don’t want our guests to have to pay out of their own pocket. Can we print up “fake” money for the guests to use for their song requests?

    The excitement of the tipping battles only works with real money. If people don’t have “skin in the game” their fake tips won’t mean anything, either to them, or to the rest of the audience watching. Using fake money can also derail the show. Some of our more daring clients have put envelopes with real money inside at each place setting, for the guests to use for to start and stop song requests. While it adds to the expense of the event, no guest will ever forget that you gave them an envelope of cash!

  • Can you play background music during cocktail hour or dinner?

    Certainly! All of our interactive high energy entertainers are able to tone it down and play (and sing) lovely background music while your guests enjoy their conversations over cocktails and crab cakes. We do advise a significant break after the background music to “reset the room“ before beginning the headline act. We come back from this reset with an entirely different energy to let everyone know that a SHOW has begun and it’s time to party!

  • We saw dueling pianos in the past and they do tipping battles to start and stop song requests. Will our guests be expected to tip you guys?

    While it is true that tipping for song requests is an integral part of dueling piano barshows, it is not expected or required for our private clients. We generally don’t put tip jars on the pianos unless you specifically request it. Some clients do! We have clients that believe that the song battles and tipping wars they have seen at bar shows are exciting and fun and ask that for it  to be part of the show.

  • Some of your videos have drums and some don’t. What’s the story?

    We do shows with and without drums. We normally quote the drums as an add-on to our show, except when we quote out weddings, where we build the drums into the quote. The biggest advantage of adding drums is that it is great for encouraging dancing. It is not, however necessary.
